VLOG | Outfit To Wear for Hiking in Pine Forest

Since yesterday’s blogpost sounded more personal, here is another blogpost written with love for you! I am going to talk about the outfit I wore for hiking in the pine forest as a shooting location I went to for the short documentary film ‘the words i hope you never have to hear’.

And also! I wanted to celebrate the total of 1000 likes I finally got on stylebychia!

Thank you so much  to you guys who have been following and keeping up with my blog. I couldn’t thank you enough. I probably should do a giveaway once I reach 4000 total followers! What do you think?

This semester break is totally a break free I have always needed. I am so excited that I finally went to pine forest near the mountain of Tangkuban Perahu, Bandung. It was exactly located a few miles from the mountain.

I went there with my friend as I once requested to go to a place where we can bring ourselves closer to nature. And here it is, a little hike to the pine forest.

We did not bring too many stuff since we did not want to make our bags heavy but one thing that we surely brought was indeed sweater whilst mine was the knitted one. Oh, and for intermezzo, actually that one picture above was once featured on Fossil’s Instagram Story since I wore Fossil watch and it was National Friendship Day. That was really exciting! I really love how Fossil treats everyone on social media, they are so lovely and kind.

I loved the ambience there, the temperature was pretty cold yet still acceptable. I loved how the sun flashing through the leaves and made lingering shadows on the ground. They were so lovely and it makes me want to go there again!

I enjoyed sleeping on the ground, and savoring the warmth of sunlight under the tall pine trees. The air was light and beautiful. I used my knitted sweater from Stradivarius as a pillow. I honestly had no idea what to wear for hiking since I was coming from Jakarta and did not really bring too many clothes which means, my outfits were totally limited and that was frustrating?!

But luckily, I decided to wear green army shirt from et cetera which I found from my wardrobe.

I wore blue ripped jeans from Stradivarius and super comfy shoes from Wakai. Umm, is it weird to wear Wakai for hiking since this shoes are more likely to be worn for malls but hey it was comfortable. Okay.

Honestly this is one of my favorite pictures in 2017. I never ever regret taking this picture because I feel like I totally nailed photography in Depth of Field (DoF) subject. Haha!

If you are keen for knowing what I did in the pine forest, check out my latest vlog here along with the stories behind the scene of ‘the words i hope you never have to hear’.

So that is how I spent my semester break so far. If you still remember my previous post in July Beatitude 2017 saying that there was a lot of things crossed in my minds about social judgement, misinterpretations and many other things, I honestly completely felt better after landing my feet in this place. It is true, they say, sometimes we just need to run away to nature for a day at least, just to clear up our minds. And it really worked. I am not being normative but this is true and it happened to me. Whatever happens, just bring yourself closer to nature. It may put your mind at ease. I hope this blogpost inspires you in every aspects, thank you so much for reading and have a great weekend!

VLOG | Afternoon Coffee at Giyanti Coffee Jakarta

I am so glad that I finally reached to the point where I don’t need to get overthink about papers anymore, yes, semester break is coming already!

This time as a part of Beatitude section, I will now be adding more content with vlog named Her Journal. This week’s vlog is Afternoon Coffee which took place in Giyanti Coffee Jakarta. Kindly watch the video below,

I hope you enjoyed the video as much as I did when making it😋 I really love the ambience in that coffee shop near Menteng because they really have perfect lighting for pictures and the air itself is not that hot though Jakarta’s weather has always been a mess with its pollution.

I ordered for the cold latte and hot latte at the same time which are the best companion for afternoon coffee.

Here is the way to the entrance as you have seen on the vlog. Very rustic, very authentic.

For the outfit itself, actually I just came from Jakarta City Hall for the opening ceremony of Jakarta Model United Nations 2017. Thus my outfit seemed quiet formal yet I tried to combine it as casual as possible. For the shirt inside, I got it from Cotton Ink whilst the leather outer from Zara.

For the patterned trouser, I got it from The Executive. I have always loved this trouser because patterned bottom always elevates the way someone’s dresses. For the mini leather bag, I got it from Pedro. Watch from Fossil and the pointed black flat shoes from Mango.

So, that’s all I got for this weekend. A vlog and a fashion inspiration which I hope could be the preference of you weekend. What do you guys think? Ever been to Giyanti or probably ever been to MUN simulation? Share what you think below and have a great weekend! 🙂

Local Beauty Brand from Bali for Coffee Enthusiast

Hello! It’s good to be finally back to another weekend because I have got something to show you, especially for those who are fond of coffee that much.

I recently received some products from local beauty brand in Bali, Kohvee Story. They are beauty products originally made from coffee and I was informed that their products contain antioxidant, detoxifier, anti-inflammatory, and absolutely the strong scent of coffee.

Honestly this is the first time for me to wear beauty products made from coffee so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try one, would it?

Coffee Skin Moisturizer

Skin moisturizer has always been the first thing to satisfy my desire in maintaining my skin health. I have heard a lot that caffeine is good for skin, especially in protecting from UV radiation. The first time I applied this product and rubbed it all over my arms and legs, I fell in love with the strong coffee scent and how it saturated with the skin.

For the texture itself, I found it a bit oily and too fluid as I expected it more dense. However I love how my skin starts to smell like coffee and feels smoother after applying it. I use this product twice a day for better result.

Coffee Cleansing Oil

And this is my favorite one because it is a multifunction product where it can be used for face massage and makeup remover which I believe everyone should have this one especially for traveling because you can get two products with two different functions at once.

I usually massage my face with this cleansing oil with two pumps once per three days, it feels very satisfying for relaxation after a long day of school and work. The result on my face this far, it feels smoother and I just love how it soothes my skin that quick.

I think that’s all I have about Kohvee Story. Honestly I totally recommend their products, especially the coffee cleansing oil since that is my favorite one. Have you ever tried it before? If not, would you? Tell me what you think below and share your thoughts with the world!

Have a great weekend and I also would like to send my deepest regards to you who are going to celebrate the Eid Mubarak tomorrow, I hope you all have a great time with your family. Happy holiday! ❤

Is GlamGlow YouthMud Mask Worth the Price?

Self-Treatment has been one of the most crucial things that someone has to add in their weekend list. Why so? Because if you treat yourself right, self-pleasure will follow anyway.

Before heading to the main content regarding the GlamGlow Tinglexfoliate Treatment, I would like to share my interesting conversation I had with a guy friend of mine yesterday.

“I don’t like seeing girls in make-up, they look like clowns and honestly, it takes so high costs for their treatment. We, boys, only like girls who look properly good in dresses and that’s enough. What do they expect from us as guys?”

I only smiled and replied him by adding about self-pleasure. I believe we are all people have different perspective about wearing make-up. Especially me, as a woman, believes that wearing make-up and grooming is not only about dress to impress, I like to take myself in proper maintenance because I love myself. Imagine when we love something, we tend to take care of it because we avoid to get it damaged. And that simply happens to ourselves, we take care of ourselves by grooming and wearing make-up occasionally because we love ourselves. Therefore, I just wanted to change people’s mindset about women who like wearing make-up and dress properly, we do that because we care about ourselves.

Okay, so that’s enough for the opening statement, I guess shall we start with my first experience with GlamGlow?

GlamGlow has been a hype product in the beauty world. I was curious so I bought a set of GlamGlow from Sephora for around $65 with mud foam included.

Processed with VSCO with se3 preset

The texture of GlamGlow itself is definitely not like scrubs but mud. The mud itself has pretty strong minty scent which I found it appealing. As I applied a thin layer on my skin, just like its name “Tinglexfoliate Treatment”, I could feel it tingling yet burning on my face. I highly recommend you to not apply it around your eyes even your eye bags because your skin in that area will feel burnt than ever. I honestly found it uncomfortable on my face, I let it dry for almost 15 minutes.

Processed with VSCO with se3 preset

Actually the mud dries faster because it would dry already for approximately in 8 minutes. As it was completely dry, I barely could move my skin. Just don’t laugh or smile because your skin was being extracted and it would cause your skin wrinkled sooner. So, you better don’t.

I immediately washed my face gently. As I finished, I felt my skin tighter and smoother. The mud really did the great job in extracting the oil on my face. Overall, I loved this product though it kinda tortured me while applying it. I think I’ll be sticking to it.

Have you tried GlamGlow YouthMud? What do you think?

Sunday Outing with Pastel Culotte

Glad to be back on blogging again! I’m pretty sure you guys must be getting bored with the same old reason I always give.

Hectic schedule.

Sorry I had to mention it again but this is utterly something that I can’t get rid of. However, I have something new for you guys!

In the first week of college, I went to some places with my sister to spend the weekend. And also, looking for new contents for vlog!

Let’s go straight to the content, so I decided to wear pastel culotte that I found in some bazaar I attended when holiday. There are varies and I love each of them.

For the white outerwear, I got it from New Look whilst the black sweater inside, I got it somewhere in Central.


Culottes are best paired with pastel high heels! I got these light pink high heels from Nine West and a watch from Alba.

Culottes have been a hype these days. There are the short ones and even the long ones like I am wearing. However, culottes may also be paired with sneakers. It feels really comfy and honestly, it makes you look slimmer. So, who doesn’t love culottes?

Tell me what’s your favorite pair with culottes on the comment below. I’d love to hear what you say 🙂

How To Wear Heels With Casual Tops

Having high heels in the closet but not confident enough to wear them because afraid of looking too much?

If you have this anxiety then you are on the right page!

You might have seen a lot of OOTD ideas on fashion blogs to dress casually with heels. Well this time, I have another ideas to rock your heels in casual outfits without being afraid of looking too much which probably will inspire you more! 🙂


This is my favorite casual outfit when it’s combined with heels. I believe the top we are wearing in an outfit is the most important thing since it also represents who we are. I have the striped top by et cetera, bag by Kate Spade New York, black heels by Pull & Bear, silver watch for female by Alba, and black cat eye wear by Le Specs. 

Besides that, I also have sweater combined with high heels! since I’m a sweatshirt type of person but not most of the time. I’ve got sweater by Top Shop, green pastel bag by Moeibag, black heels by Nine West, watch and wallet by Fossil, and glasses by Owl.

As you have seen in the picture, there is a green pastel tote bag. Tote bag, sweater, then heels?! Yes. Wearing heels is the most powerful thing to increase the level of women’s fanciness to me. Therefore, instead of wearing sweatshirt with sneakers like usual, why not try high heels?

So, I think that’s all for two outfit ideas that may bring you inspiration to wear heels casually. Which one is your favorite outfit? Or maybe if you have another ideas regarding to wear heels casually, you may share your thoughts in the comment below. Look forward to hear more from you, have a great day! 🙂

Summerbird (Bed and Brasserie): Was I Impressed?

Hello, Guys! Who likes to stroll around the city and look for new places? If you do, I have this one coming up for you!

Basically, this is the first post of “Odysseia” where I will start reviewing hidden gems in the cities or even countries I visit. Can I say yay to that for the very first post?

I was introduced by my friend to have a visit to this Bed and Brasserie located in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. I was welcomed with vintagely cute interior. From that perspective, I might say that this place is better for youth.

The staffs are really nice and understanding which made me feel comfortable to stay longer for small talk with friends and photos indeed.


I ordered two coffees, a lattè and a cappuccino. I was expecting for some artsy foam on top but nope, just a cup of coffee. I didn’t order much since I was quite stuffed, I only ordered one mixed platter which has sausage, calamary, wedges, and onion rings in it. It tasted fine but a bit tasteless to me. More spices would be great.


SummerBird also has hotel in the upstairs with various rates. I didn’t stay but I loved to see the corridor with the vines which gave the homey look because they don’t have 20 rooms or above like hotels you always notice in general.

Processed with VSCO with lv01 preset
The tables for its cafe are not only downstairs but they are also available in upstairs along with the rooms. The vintage look of its cafe made me feel want to stay longer for another sip of coffee but unfortunately, the foods I ordered was fine but not outstanding.

To sum it up, here’s what I think about Summer Bird for my first impression.

Ambience (9 out of 10)
Food and Beverage (8 out of 10)
Service (9.5 out of 10)

Impression (8.8 out of 10)

Have you ever been here or interested enough to visit? Share what you think through the comment below. I will also do another reviews for Odysseia. I can’t wait to do it further! Thanks for reading ❤

New Year’s Tropical Eve Party at Ocha & Bella

Happy New Year 2017!

I hope you guys had a great year in 2016 and I wish you tons of luck for the next 12 months. Cheers for bright future!!

It’s been a while I had not posted a blog-post since decades perhaps and I am truly sorry for that since college has been hitting me really hard lately. But it’s now 2017! Forget about the past because you now have a blank paper to write on with new things. Well, this time before welcoming 2017, I would like to share some little experience I had in the last two hours of 2016.

_________

I had a chance to attend the Tropical New Year BBQ Party at the restaurant of Morissey Hotel, Ocha & Bella, accompanied by my sister as usual. The ambience was very Hawaiian since all the staffs were wearing floral shirts and casual short pants. Whereas I decided to look more different than the others, black and white outfit as usual.

img_8293

I wore knit dress from Mango, followed by black trouser by Suite Blanco. And for the headscarf and accessories from The Executive. Last but not least, sling bag and high heels are from Charles and Keith.

The party went really fun until my sister’s coupon number was called and happened to receive the lucky draw. She won a dine-in voucher worth for 500 IDR. Later after that, my coupon number was called too. I didn’t even notice what gift I was actually receiving but when I came up to the stage, they handed me a bottle of white wine as a gift. If only I could drink, I might decide to open table for all the attendants here.

We savored the tropical party until the clock pointed at 12. Everyone stood up, blew the trumpets loudly and kissed each other. Very romantic for those who brought their partner. Very romantic.

img_8306

So, that’s how I spent the new year’s eve of 2017. Everyone was outside enjoying the fireworks, hoping for magnificent moments to happen in 2017. I hope everyone had so much fun in the new year’s eve. Once again, happy new year 2017! 🙂

Inglot Cosmetics You Should Try

Have you ever heard about Inglot Cosmetics before?

I believe you have!

I was recently bumped into Inglot Cosmetics, especially their breathable nail polish which has been really hype lately because it also can be applied to Muslims since we usually cannot pray because the average nail polishes do not absorb water into our nails. The latest nail polishes that I received from Inglot Cosmetics are O2M Soft Matte 532 (Red Wine Color) and O2M Soft Matte 536 (Grape Wine Color), and also their Lipstick Matte 413.

O2M Soft Matte 536

One of my favorites! Since this nail polish is a soft matte type, I intended to not use the base coat to see how it will clearly look like once it dried. And this is how it looks like,

Processed with VSCO with se3 preset

When it comes to camera, the color seems shining as if it was coated by base coat. But when you see it yourself, it looks utterly matte. After I had tried the O2M Matte only, I still prefer to wear base coat on it for perfect look.

O2M Soft Matte 532

Who likes the lady in red? Since I only wore the Matte 536, this time I featured my sister to wear this red wine color. She wore base coat because she wanted it to look more glamorous since Matte seems too casual for her. And here’s the compared picture between us wearing Matte 532 and Matte 536.

However, we love how its color shows up in pictures. They look glamorous and very suitable for those who want to bold their look. Which one is your favorite?

Lipstick Matte 411

Gothic all the way! I really fancy dark and monochrome colors, the amalgam of purple and black are one of the colors that I adore the most. Lipstick Matte 411 has very nice shade and looks good when it comes to my skin. This shade is long lasting as long as you don’t have heavy meals and you don’t eat light meals that much, let’s say it’s approximately for 3 – 4 hours.

img_7516

Soo, that’s all for this week’s blog-post. Before jumping out to the final line of this article, I hope you like this look and inspires you to live your life to the fullest. Have a great weekend and thank you for reading! ❤

Celebration of “Fall in New York” by Kate Spade New York

This Wednesday, I was invited to attend the Fall Collection Preview 2016 by Kate Spade New York at Plaza Senayan, Indonesia. The evening of styling, shopping and celebration of Fall in the store of Kate Spade NY was really exciting and they really hit the nail in the head!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

As I was about to enter the entrance of the store, I was warmly welcomed by Stephanie. She gave me two tickets for photo booth since I was being accompanied by a friend of mine. After I had entered the store, I looked around and saw many of fashion bloggers taking pictures, videos and even doing transactions already since they couldn’t even wait any longer to make their first purchase of Kate Spade’s Fall collection.

Truthfully, their collection never changed to me. Kate Spade NY has their own designs in each of their collection, therefore, no matter how many seasons on earth, they are still being Kate Spade NY with their colorful, bright and sophisticated products.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

This section is my favorite so far since I love monochrome too much. My friends and I also didn’t miss the photo booth session. The background of Broadway mini stage gave a little scenery of Fall in New York.

Since I don’t want to miss the moment of Kate Spade’s Fall Celebration, I wore one of their bag collections and it has become my favorite one. I really enjoyed the evening with all fine people that are gathered in a store of Kate Spade NY at Plaza Senayan. Looking forward to their new collection and thanks for the invitation, Kate Spade!
